What is PRP for facial rejuvenation?+
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component retrieved from your own blood and then injected into the target areas of the face. It is a natural, non-invasive procedure which helps promote the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen reduces wrinkles, tightens the skin and helps achieve a healthy, rejuvenated glow.
How does the treatment work?+
A small amount of patient’s blood is drawn and then the PRP is isolated by centrifuge and injected into specific areas on the face. Depending on various factors, several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired result.
What should be expected after the treatment?+
Some patients experience soreness and bruising at the injection sites for up to 3 days. There is no downtime required, so you can get back to your regular activities right away.
Is it safe?+
PRP injections are safe and natural as you are being injected with your own plasma. Patients who have a fear of needles have reported the procedure to cause little to no discomfort.
